The Lesotho National Olympic Committee has embarked on a new initiative of awarding athletes for exceptional performances in international games.
The first athletes to benefit from this programme, dual silver medallists in the African Beach Games – Mokulubete MAKATISI and Tebello RAMAKONGOANA, were yesterday awarded by the Honourable Minister of Sports.
Their award came after winning silver medals in both the 10km individual and team races in those games held in Hammamet, Tunisia. Both athletes were each awarded with a cheque amounting to M45,000.00.
Let’s congratulate them for their endeavour preparation for upcoming Paris2024 Olympic Games.
